As a parent of two teenagers, I strongly support maintaining Iowa City’s 21-only after 10 p.m. ordinance. This law not only protects our children, it is vital to our overall public health and safety.
Since the ordinance went into effect, the health and safety of our young people has dramatically increased. A 17 percent decline in high-risk drinking among University of Iowa students is a significant improvement that would not have happened without the ordinance. I have no doubt this makes for a healthier community.
Our community is safer and more vibrant today than it was before the 21 ordinance became law. Please join me in voting no this November to protect the 21 ordinance.
